hola,
I have a site that's on it's way to being done, but I noticed a problem in firefox when resizing the browser to 800x600, http://69.36.167.110/test/testing.php, the news div on the right gets all f'ed up and I'm just not sure why. Any suggestions are welcome, thanks much (design suggestions are welcome as well).
muchas gracias.

problem with resize in firefox

Hi cmos,
you have to take in the width of scroll bars in your calculations.
Instead of 800px try changing everything to about 780px.

Hope that helps

problem with resize in firefox

Hi cmos,
In your css you have the width of many elements set to 800px; bring these down to 780px. (#header, #top, #content...)
and make sure elements within them still fit.
Of course you will still get the same problem for browser windows set smaller the 800px. Shock

Hope that helps

problem with resize in firefox

tony,
thanks, I just noticed something about the bugginess in firefox (don't know if you've seen that yet). I have an overflow:auto on the news div and the amount that it appears to be disorted when minimized appears to be for a non-existent overflow scroll bar. Do you have any experience with this (e.g., is it a common moz/fb/ff problem?).
muchas gracias for all your help.

--eliminating overflow:auto on the news div alleviated the bug in firefox but I'm really not sure why that should be the case--
